Valley Nature Center

It doesn’t look much from the outside but if you walk through this visitor center... enter into a different world, quiet, peaceful and with birds flocking to feeders

It’s worth waiting in the car park  at dusk to look for parrots and or parakeets flying to roost. You may be able to follow their flightlines to work out where the roost is.
